CHELSEA 1-1 Schalke: In a Nutshell

I did say in the match preview, I don’t like going into games with excessive confidence – and last night’s result is the reason why. Complacent Street is never a comfortable place to be and yet, after going a goal up, that’s exactly where Chelsea appeared to take a stroll. Couple that with a few [...]

CHELSEA v Schalke: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday 17 September Kick-off: 19:45 Here we go then, our first Champions League game of the season sees us at home to Schalke. We’re no strangers to the German side of course, having played them a few times now and most recently beating them 3-0 twice in last season’s campaign. This [...]

Terry & Costa Cut From the Same Cloth?

Not wanting to turn the blog into a Costa love-fest too early in the season but what a ridiculously good buy he’s looking to be. So far this season, we’ve had 7 goals in four games, so there’s no doubt we’ve got ourselves a striker. It’s not just the goals though, or the fact we [...]

CHELSEA v Swansea: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 13 September Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Thank the good Lord this afternoon sees us back to the normality of the Premier League again and for us, it’s a top of the table clash at home to Swansea. Ok, so realistically we’ve only played three games apiece so far but there’s still [...]

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Goodison Park Date: Saturday, 30 August Kick-off: 17:30 Today’s late game sees us travel to Goodison Park for a game against an Everton side without a win so far. Not that The Toffees have been particularly poor at the start of this season although their defence might have been guilty of a little jet-lag [...]

CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 23 August Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Monday night saw a really impressive start to the season from Chelsea, with the sort of football mere words don’t really do justice. The fact that Arsenal’s response to Fabregas’ performance was to get bent out of shape, sums up the bargain we’ve bagged with [...]

Why Chelsea Have it Right Now

So, United kicked off the 2014/15 campaign with their first home defeat of the season out of the way. Not the end of the world really although probably not what they’d have expected given they hadn’t lost on the opening day at Old Trafford since 1972 and Swansea had never won there in the Premier [...]

Burnley v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Turf Moor Date: Monday, 18 August Kick-off: 20:00 GMT At long last our first game of the season is here and it’s an away fixture against Burnley to kick off our 2014/15 campaign. An easy one considering the Betfair betting odds for the game, you might think? Well there’s no such thing as an [...]

The 2014/15 Season: Jose Knows

Our Premier League campaign might not kick-off until Monday but in yesterday’s press conference, Jose Mourinho sounded more than ready for the new season. Our first XI might be a different matter, with the Chelsea boss confirming ‚ÄúProbably the first two or three matches will be more about the team that is ready than what [...]
